I know that this blog post would have been a lot more timely had I posted it prior to Easter, but Easter candy isn’t half price at Target before Easter, and these Peeps stuffed chocolate eggs normally cost something crazy like $5 each. At $2.50 each though they’re a total steal, especially when you’re looking for something new to deep fry!
I started off by whipping up my batter (1 cup flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 cup milk and 2 eggs) and then dipping the chocolate eggs in it before tossing them into my deep fryer for 45 seconds or so.
After taking them out and letting them cool for a couple minutes I cut into one of them. The second I broke it open melted milk chocolate and gooey marshmallow Peeps started oozing out. Considering that the eggs were about the size of a baseball they were a little messy to eat, but they were definitely worth the $2.50 investment for each one!
